LITTLE DANCING FEET.
Did you ever see our baby
"With her eyes -so sparkling bright,
And her skin so lily white,
Lips and cheeks of rosy light?
Tell you what,
She is just the sweetest baby
In the lot.
Ah! she is our only darling
And to me
All her little ways are witty
And when she sings her little ditty,
Every word is just as pretty
As can be
Not another in the city
Sweet as she.
You don't think so ?never saw her!
Wish you could
See her with- her playthings clattering,
Hear her little tongue a-chattering,
Little dancing feet come pattering
Think you would
Love her just as well as I do
If you could!
Every grandma's only 'darling.%
Is as sweet and bright a blossom
Is a treasure to her bosom.
Is as cheering and enduring
As any rose.
Heavenly Father, spare them to us
Till life's close.
Mrs, F. J).' Gaffek

Max Acleler says: We are surprised to
read in an exchange that the corn of Mr.
Redman, of Lycoming county, is seven
feet high.'' We pity Redman. We can
not imagine how he gets his boots on
over such a corn,nor can we conceive how
he contrives to walk barefooted. I is
hardly likely, we should think, that Red
man himself is more than six feet high,
and if that is the case that soltiarys corn
of his must tower above his head. I
might be a good thing to tie an umbrella
to, or he might carry a flower pot on his
foot and have a honey-suckle climbing
up the corn and blossoming under his
Sever Saw a Picture.
Incidentally, during the meeting of the
managers of the Industrial school of
Jackson county, Wisconsin, a sad case of
destitution and ignorance was brought to
light. It seems that four children, whose
mother was insane, and father imbecile,
were sent to the Industrial school. The
mother had once attempted to burn their
miserable hovel, and again to murder
them. Under the circumstances the au
thorities of Jackson county agreed to pay
expenses if the children were cared for at
the school. They arrived some time ago.
Brought up amidst such surroundings,
they absolutely did not know what a pic
ture was, but ran up to one hanging on
the wall, representing some kittens at
play, and tried eagerly to take them in
their arms. They did not know the use
of a thimble, and of course, could not tell
one letter from another.
Look to Your Stock.
A seasonable reminder, it is hoped, may
induce those who have hitherto been care"
less about attending to their stock, at this
busy seasqn^tolpay due heed tojthe require
ments of one or thifmost inportant branch
es of agricultural economy.
Let us once
more impress on allr that cows, to give the
greatest amount of milk during the hot
weather,shouldhave an abundance otgood
clean water. On the importance, causes
and consequences of this, we have lately
dwelt at length.
The hot sun of these days renders the
grass less sufficient as it matures, and
dries up the natural supply of water, so that
it will stand the farmer in pocket, to pump
a liberal supply for his stock, four or even
five times a day, wherever there is not an
abundance of clear, fresh watqr supplied
by natural means. The use of surface
water from stagnant pools is at once inju
rious to the animals themselves, and to the
milk they yield.
Stake your tomato plants now, before
they fall over and grow sprawling along
the ground. Drive a stake four or five
feet high, close to each plant, with two
or three cross-pieces a foot long,. nailed
on it. Nip off every lateral branch that
starts from the main stalk, above the
leaves, and tie the plant to the stake as
it grows, with course twine. For early
fruit, select three or four of the most
forward plants, and pinch off not only all
the laterals, but the main stalk, a few
inches above the first cluster of blossoms.
You thus divert all the vigor of the plant
into one cluster of fruit, and can ripen
tomatoes two or three weeks ahead of the
other plants. We have had twenty-four
fine Trophies" making a cluster as large
as one could cover with a hat, ripening
the most of them in July, by this'process.
Under favorable condition of soil and
culture, on singlestalk system, tomato
plants will grow five or six feet high, and
ripen as many clusters of fruit-^cleaner,
better in flavor, larger and earlier.
While few articles of food are more
or less injurious than unripe fruit, still it
is almost impossible to take'too 'many of
those that are ripe, fresh and perfect
when eaten in their natural state. The
earlier in the day fruits are
eaten the better. Their healthful
qualities depend on their ripe acidity, but
if sweetened with sugar not only is this
acidity neutralized, but the stomach is
tempted to receive* more than it can di
gest, and if cream be taken,with them
the labor of digestion is increased. N
liquid of any description should be
drank within an hour after eating fruits,
nor should anything else be eaten within
two or three hours afterthus, time be
ing allowed for them to pass out of the
stomach, the system derives from them
all their enlivening, cooling and aperient
influences. The great rule is, eat fruits
and berries while fresh, ripe and perfect
in their natural state, without eating or
drinking anything for at least two hours
afterwards. With these restrictions, fruits
may be eaten in moderation during any
hour of the day, and without getting
tired of them, or ceasing to be benefited
by them during the whole season.
It is not often that an inventor has
such an implicit faith in his invention, or
the nerve to demonstrate the fact as Dr.
Waters of Salem recently showed before
the Massachusetts Dental Society.
stated that bicarbonate of soda, such as is
used for cooking purposes, or any other
alkali in neutral form,would afford instan
taneous cessation of pain from the sever
est burns or scalds, and would cure such
injuries in a few hours. Deliberately
dipping a sponge into boiling water, the
Doctor squeezed it over his right wrist,
producing a severe scald around his arm
and some two inches in width. Then,
despite the suffering occasioned, he ap
plied the scalding water to his wrist for
half a minute. Bicarbonate of soda was
at once dusted over the surface, a wet
cloth applied, and the pain, the experi
menter stated, was almost instantly dead
ened. Although the flesh of the wrist
was literally cooked down to the sweat
glands,and|the wound|was of a nature to be
open and painful for a considerable time,
on the day following the single applica
tion of the soda, the less injured portion
was practically healed, only a slight fdis
coloration of the flesh being perceptible,
The severe wound in a few^days, with no
other treatment than a wet cloth kept
over it, showed every sign of rapid heal
How to Place tlie Bed.
Baron Reichenbach, who has devoted
many years of deep study to the art of
bed-making, maintains that you must not
always lie on your bed as it is made, un
der penalty of abridging your .life by a
great number of years. If, says the bar
on, a mere magnet exercises an influence
on sensitive persons, the earth's magnet
ism must certainly make itself felt on
the nervous life of man. Hence he dwells
on the salutary effects of the inhabitants
of the Northern hemisphere lying with
their heads to the north, and those of the
Southern with their heads to the South.
For travelers with short memories we
may put the rule in general terms: I
whatever hemisphere you may be, always
sleep with your feet to the equator, and
let your body lie "true as a needle to the
pole." In giving this rule the baron has
simply told us how to live long for the
polar direction of the body is, it appears,
of the utmost importance for the proper
circulation of the blood, and we have
Baron Reichenbach's authority for stat
ing that many disturbances in the human
organisms have been cured by simply
placing the bolster at a different point of
the compass from that it had occupied
before. Let such as have hitherto been
in the habit of sleeping with their heads
where their feet ought to be, take to heart
the example Of the late Dr. Fischweiter,
Magdeburg, who died recently at the age
of 109 years, and always attributed his
long life to his faithful observance of the
pole to pole position of sleeping. The
myst^un^iealthy position, we are told, is
when the body lies due east and west.
Some observers assure us that to sleep in
such a posture is tantamount to commit
ting slow suicide, and that diseases are
often aggravated by deviations, from.. the
